Hello lovely readers!
I spent this past week learning a beautiful abdominal massage therapy technique know as, Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®.
When these massage techniques are applied, they guide the internal abdominal organs back into their proper position. The techniques work by relieving congestion and blockages in order to improve flow in the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems. This results in improved organ function and therefore improved gynecological, digestive and urinary health.

I have been learning so much about fertility awareness in the past few months and wanted to share some of what I’ve learned with all of you! The three aspects that are involved in the fertility awareness method are:
- Basal body temperature readings (your temperature when you first wake up in the morning)
- Cervical mucus quality
- Cervical position

Another period post, hooray! As a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, I absolutely love working with women’s health. This includes everything from period problems (PMS, pain, irregularity, no period), infertility, pregnancy, post-partum and menopause. I am fascinated by the complexity of the female reproductive system and not just as it relates to being able to having babies, but also as a reflection of overall health for women. Many women that I treat have been prescribed the birth control pill to “regulate” their cycles and to “alleviate” PMS symptoms. You can read more about my thoughts on that here. Women are told that they just have to suffer through pregnancy symptoms, get through postpartum challenges and continue to struggle as their body shifts in to menopause. This is just not the case!
